Great cruise to a beautiful coast on an enjoyable ship
"No "official" rapid antigen tests were available near my home, but I heard that Carnival may offer them at a cash price (no insurance) at the dock, as some other cruise lines do.I dined early, received a good solo table and excellent service -- no Covid worries as far as I was concerned...."Read More

Worst cruise week of our lives

Fifth cruise with their company(Carnival, Princess, Holland America) in past seven years. Will never cruise with any of them again. Changed our itinerary without notice causing difficulty for friends who travelled 900 miles to meet us at the omitted port. If they would have advised us of a change in itinerary, we could have cancelled our cruise or our friends could have made different ...

Carnival Splendor Alaska June 28- July 5, 2022 This was our 3rd attempt at a honeymoon cruise since the pandemic started. We booked this cruise to Alaska because it stopped at Skagway that had the train excursion. After our vacation dates were approved and set, we were notified that the port of calls had changed and we were no longer stopping there. I then started the process with ...

Mediocre Food, Mediocre Cabin, Mediocre Entertainment

Carnival has gone downhill since our last cruise with them in 2007. The food was nothing special and the portions were small. You now have to pay for cabin food service. The entertainment was blah, lip-synced dance reviews. In 2007 we had live bands and real singers. Lido buffet has country-based themes daily but no published schedule. Had food that I still talk about today on 2007 ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to Alaska, we booked in 2019 and of course it was canceled. Once we got it rescheduled at some point Carnival decided to change the ship and the itinerary, they removed the stop in Skagway and they changed the ship to the splendor. Splendor was a difficult ship to navigate. Once we got use to the layout we were ok. I’m gonna be comparing this ...

This cruise was our 50th anniversary celebration that included family members for a group of 10. Two disappointments before sailing--Icy Strait Point substituted for Skagway and a ship change that altered the staterooms we had painstakingly selected. The Cruise Critic ship review is accurate--decor overwhelming to the point of tacky. Otherwise, Splendor is pleasant enough. Grandkids enjoyed ...

Just an FYI before I start. Family of 4 in our cabin and two of us came home with COVID from the cruise. I chose this cruise since we had one canceled because of Covid. Embarkation was slow. We were told to arrive between 1:30-2. It took about 90 minutes to get on. Very crowded inside and masks are required during that process. I am a Gold member with Carnival and have used them more than ...

I’ll make this quick and simple. We just got back from a Alaska cruise and you couldn’t even pay me to step back on this ship or deal with this company. - Beyond outdated ship. You are literally stepping into a time capsule. - Defective sail and sign cards. We had to visit the guest services desk up to 3-4x daily to get new ones. They were aware of these issues and their response was “ The ...

Cruise from Hell - Bad Food and Illness

This was our fifth cruise - third on Carnival and one each on Princess and Norwegian. It was our second time to Alaska, having previously completed an Alaska cruise tour on Princess. This was by far the worst cruising experience we have had, mainly due to illness and terrible food (poor food handling and preparation). The good: Great price, ship at only 2/3 capacity, awesome weather, some ...

This was the Carnival Splendor's second Alaska (and first seven-day) itinerary of 2022. The ship was inactive during the pandemic and is great shape now as it returns to service. I have done this itinerary multiple times before -- on RCI, NCL, Celebrity, and once years ago on the Carnival Tropicale. The service on the Splendor lives up to all of them, and the Carnival price is by far the best ...
